12 Years a Slave Trailer

The first trailer for 12 Years a Slave was released today and it offers the first look at the footage of Steve McQueen's capturing of Solomon Northup's harrowing true story of living in captivity for twelve years before obtaining his freedom.

McQueen's last two films haven't fared well during Oscar season, but given the cast and the prestigious material, this should be the film that catches the Academy's eye for McQueen.
